Psy Ropes the “Today Show” Anchors Into Doing the “Gangnam Style”
Posted by Newson 09/14/2012 at 12:32 PM
It’s been a good week-plus for K-Pop professional Psy, who in the last ten days has cameo’d on stage with Kevin Hart at the Video Music Awards, taught Britney Spears how to do the “Gangnam Style” on Ellen, and has now performed on the Today Show stage with all the Show anchors serving as his backing dancers, in front of a rapturous Rockefeller Center crowd. Psy looks quite the boss in his lime-green jacket and sunglasses (the latter of which were also donned by much of the audience, sure to soon be a wardrobe must for PSYchos), and the anchors seem to be enjoying themselves a borderline-unhealthy amount riding their fake horses and swinging their fake lassos.
“Gangnam Style” debuts at #64 on the Hot 100 this week, and is currently at #3 on iTunes, sure to make a huge jump on the charts next week. Before you know it, you won’t be able to check out a library book without hearing the 75-year-old librarian humming “HEYYYYYY SEXY LAYYY-DAYYYY!!!” to herself.
